Blogger Blame Purchases with Green Fashionista

Kate is a blogging pal that I've been lucky enough to have turn into an IRL friend!! Read on as she blames me for some purchases :) 

Good Morning B~Loved Boston readers, my name is Kate and you can find me over at Green Fashionista where I blog about fashion and beauty reviews, weekend shenanigans, and my all time favorite hobby - traveling. I know this is a hobby that Biana and I both share, and I can't wait to see pics from the amazing trip she and Gary are on where they're soaking up all the beauty and culture.

Biana has introduced us all to some fabulous products and chic inspirations over the past few years, and I definitely sent some of my Blogger Blame Purchases love over to her {Part II found here}. So today, I wanted to round up all of my favorite products that I purchased after hearing her rave about them.

NARS Creamy Concealer -  I had been a huge fan of Benefit's Erase Paste for several years to cover up my hereditary dark circles under my eyes and any acne marks, but Biana kept raving about this concealer so I gave it a whirl. And of course she was right, this is definitely my go-to concealer now. I love the consistency better and that it has a built in wand.
Evian Facial Spray - Between the FL heat and my love for travel, this spray helps combat those warm days or long inter-continental plane rides. I always feel so grimy after a long flight, and these sprays are the perfect anecdote and are quite refreshing. I'm sure Biana packed this for her long flights and the warm weather in India.
MoroccanOil Dry Shampoo - I tend to switch up my dry shampoos every once in a while, as I tend to get an aversion to the smell after wearing them for a while. I'm still loving DryBar's Triple Sec as well, but was sold on the MoroccanOil one after Biana talked about the great scent and how it doesn't leave a residue in your hair especially for us brunettes. Win-win!
Sofia Blanc de Blancs Minis - My love for bubbly is no secret, and I love the convenience of these pretty little cans that can be found at Target during your usual trip. The packaging is too pretty to pass up, and how cute are those little straws they come with so you won't mess up your lipstick?
Barre Classes - Biana did a great comparison review of Pure Barre and Bar Method here which inspired me to try out Bar Method after taking several Barre3 classes. I was excited to see what the difference was between the two studios, and was surprised that as similar as they are that they are also very different which I compared here. I can honestly say I truly love both workouts, and can't seem to pick a favorite.
Benefit's Watt's Up - I'm always trying to achieve that amazing "J-Lo Glow", and have a lot of favorite highlighters in my makeup collection. But when Biana recommended this creamy highlighter that can be applied using your fingers, I was intrigued. I'm a huge fan of Benefit products, and have yet to try one that I didn't love. Another amazing product!
Pic-Tap-Go App - I don't have the best natural light in certain spots in my house, so when Biana suggested downloading this app for just a few dollars I knew it'd help improve a lot of my photos. Because let's be real, most of us snap most of our pics on our phones. Ain't nobody got time to lug around the fancy camera for everything.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Perfume - My signature scent in college was this perfume, and I forgot how much I loved it until she posted about it being one of her perfume staples. D&G's Light Blue is one of those classic scents that will never go out of style.

Can't wait to return to Boston for more drinks with fabulous views of the harbor with this girl! Until then, cheers!
